"Renowned filmmaker Vittorio De Sica followed up his international triumph Bicycle Thieves with this enchantingly playful neorealist fairy tale, in which he combines his celebrated slice-of-life poetry with flights of graceful comedy and storybook fantasy. On the outskirts of Milan, a band of vagabonds works together to form a shantytown. When it is discovered that the land they occupy contains oil, however, it's up to the cherubic orphan Totò (Francesco Golisano)--with some divine help--to save their community from greedy developers. Tipping their hats to the imaginative whimsy of Charles Chaplin and René Clair, De Sica and screenwriter Cesare Zavattini, adapting his own novel, craft a big-hearted ode to the nobility of everyday people"--Container

"Hailed around the world as one of the greatest movies ever made, the Academy Award-winning Bicycle Thieves, directed by Vittorio De Sica, defined an era in cinema. In poverty-stricken postwar Rome, a man is on his first day of a new job that offers hope of salvation for his desperate family when his bicycle, which he needs for work, is stolen. With his young son in tow, he sets off to track down the thief. Simple in construction and profoundly rich in human insight, Bicycle Thieves embodies the greatest strengths of the Italian neorealist movement: emotional clarity, social rectitude, and brutal honesty"--Kanopy website

Il marito accetta il ritorno della moglie solo grazie alle insistenze del piccolo. Poco per volta in famiglia le cose migliorano: il piccolo guarisce, Dina e Andrea sembrano riscoprire la serenità coniugale. Tuttavia, durante una vacanza "madre-figlio" al mare, l'amante di Dina si ripresenta. Pricò, scoperto per caso il ritorno di fiamma della coppia, tenta di scappare a Roma dal papà. La paura per la fuga del bambino non ferma la donna dall'intenzione di filare via di nuovo con il compagno. Per Andrea il colpo è tremendo: sistemato Pricò in un istituto, si uccide.
